“Going to a traditional performance of The Messiah will never be the same again”
Saturday 7th November at 6.00pm (Doors Open 5.15pm)
St. Lukes Church, St. Lukes Avenue, Ramsgate, Kent, CT11 7JX
Taking a different path from the tradition of static soloists and huge choirs reading their music, the Merry Opera Company’s critically acclaimed staged production features a cast of just 12 singers, using action and the whole space of the church to convey the meaning behind the music – yet with minimal props, and without adding anything unoriginal to Handel’s popular score or libretto. One audience member said, “We have never experienced anything so moving and exciting as your performance last night…we wanted everyone to have heard it. Thank you so much. We cannot stop thinking about it.” and then travelled from Wallingford to Brighton to see it again the following week.
